Hello! My name is Donald J., but you can call me D.J. I am a graduate of Penn State University, where I majored in Advertising and double minored in History and Business. I am a certified substitute teacher, and I am currently enrolled in the New Jersey Alternate Route Teacher Preparation Program with the goal of becoming a certified full-time teacher within the next year!

Learning and teaching have always been an essential part of my life. In high school, as a part of multiple sports teams, I tutored my teammates in subjects such as History, World Governments, and English. Personally, I have always enjoyed the thrill of grasping a new concept for the first time, and I love to spread that joy and help others become competent in their studies as well.

I know I want to be a teacher because I love kids. I love the constant energy that children have every single day. My goal is simple: I aim to be a positive influence in the lives of my students. Ultimately, I want them to love learning and I want them to realize all of the possibilities that life has in store for them. In order to help each and every student I encounter, I strive to be patient, respectful, and enthusiastic!
